U.S Stocks Nose-Dive, Weighed By Fears Of Rate Increase And Tumbling Crude Prices

Sp500 index has witnessed the biggest losing session on Friday since June 27 when the benchmark dropped more than 1%. Investors were rattled by hawkish comments by Federal Reserve officials that backed a U.S. interest rate hike while a slump in crude prices dragged down energy sector.

Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren, who is a voting member of the Fed’s policy committee and therefore will have a vote in the Fed’s decision, stated on Friday that “based on data that we have received to date…a reasonable case can be made for continuing to pursue a gradual normalization of monetary policy”.

None of 10 S&P500 sectors traded in the green. Two worst performers are utilities and telecoms that were both down around 3%. Energy shares, dropped 2.1 percent, due to more than 3% decline in crude prices.
